Art, religion and spirituality in Australia - celebrating 60 years of The Blake Prize!
The Blake Book offers readers a fascinating visual social history of Australia and an astute, well-documented history of The Blake Prize from 1951 - 2011. The seven unique foldout pages invite the reader to discover and explore key aspects of that multifaceted history.
The book traces many significant changes in art and art movements, both within and beyond Australia. Through their work and words, the artists have room to speak of what has influenced them and found expression in their Blake entries. The influences they name range widely. Choices often surprise.
Among the winning artists presented in the book are Donald Friend, John Coburn, Stanislaus Rapotec, Roger Kemp, Ken Whisson, Maryanne Coutts, George Gittoes and Euan Macleod. Space is given to indigenous art and the many exhibited artists other than the winners.
This book would make a wonderful gift for the many festivals celebrated in families and for all who care for life and world and whose lives are marked by these concerns.
It offers many delights for art-lovers, gallery viewers and art collectors. As well as students of art history, spirituality and religions. No doubt libraries will also welcome it.
